Essential Power Tools for Woodworking Projects

It’s a poor workman who blames his tools but it is a smart one who uses the right one for any particular job. A wide range of power tools have enormously simplified the woodworking process and made it far more enjoyable for everyone from the talented amateur to the seasoned pro.

Here is a list of some tools that every woodworker should have:

Table Saw – The workhorse of the woodcutting shop, this machine is indispensable for making accurate cuts.

Computer Miter Chop Saw – A tool that makes jointing and mitering a far easier process than using the table saw.

Power Drill – Wood pieces cannot always be glued together and a power drill makes short work of screws and other fasteners.

Router – While rounding and edging can be accomplished on the table saw, a router is quite useful for working on semi-completed pieces.

Orbital Sander – These wonderful tolls make finishing far easier than belt sanders or pure muscle power. A must-have.
